What Are WE Living For?

By Songbird

 

What are we living for?

If we can’t put down our swords

Or our guns and all we want is wars

With everyone who lives under the sun

So what are we living for?

 

Because it seems to me

We are condition to only care about

Our flags, our borders and religions

Well forgetting about those who beg

Just for a quarter and are left in their rags

Never to escape their additions

 

So what are we living for?

When we don’t care for the poor

And the rich always want more

And all we wanna do is settle scores

And go to war

So what are we living for?

 

Because it alarms me

That we say and pray for

Love, peace and harmony

But we close the door

And let those die in everyway

Over our unsettled scores

As all we want is wars

 

So what are we living for?

If we can’t put down our swords

Or our guns and all we want is wars

With everyone who lives under the sun

So what are we living for?

 

Because see in my eyes

It should matter if you’re black or white

Your sexuality or how much you make on your salary

As all hearts beat alike

As we all bleed alike

So why is there so much brutality?

Why must we fight for our human rights?

When there’s lost souls who wander the roads

Or the endless streets in our own countries

Alone at night, in the heat or in the cold, hungry

 

So what are we living for?

If we can’t put down our swords

Or our guns and all we want is wars

With everyone who lives under the sun

So what are we living for?

 

I just hope one day

We find the love, peace and harmony

That we all pray and search for

And not get it from a Pharmacy

Or what are we living for?

What are we living for?
